[movies]GET LAMP: Dave West - Jason Scott
Dave West is a long-time caver, and was the leader of the expedition into Bedquilt that opens the GET LAMP film. After he and the rest of the party took me down into the cave for the day, I snagged an interview with him, Roger Brucker and Tom Brucker, to get background about caves and caving and knowing how this game was based on the actual system. He was really kind to do so after a massive day of moving some annoying filmmaker around the bowels of the earth.

Ryan Russell and I had seen each other at a ton of DEFCON hacking conferences, and we talked about interviewing him for GET LAMP for quite a while. As it was, we finally found ourselves in the same place one year and I interviewed him for a while about his time as a playtester for Synapse software, and other related work. And then I lost the footage, due to a technical error. I let Ryan know about it, and he was happy to shoot it all again, because now he got a second bite to be more literate an...

Michael Feir was the founder and editor of Audyssey magazine, which is a magazine (now website) dedicated to finding accessibility in games. Blind himself, Michael was up for being interviewed for GET LAMP and even provides a critical show of using a game like Zork with a speech synthesizer. He really drove the sequence in GET LAMP about the blind, making it go from a potential bonus feature on the DVD to a prominent sequence in the final movie.

I interviewed Adam in the same hotel room in Las Vegas that I interviewed Ian Bogost, all during a classic gaming convention being held at the Riviera casino. He was a big recommendation from Robb Sherwin, who I'd interviewed earlier. As it turned out, every clip of his interview I used in GET LAMP was either negative or world weary, but that's not really the tone of a lot of his answers. Adam is a continual IF writer, and loves the medium dearly, and had continued to add fun new works to the wo...

Chris Forman is an incredible collector of adventure games - he has, if not every commercially released game, more than anyone seeking great shots and real insight into the variety of them could want. Originally he was going to just have me take some shots of his boxes, but I got the idea to interview him, so with no preparation, he graciously sat down and discussed both his favorite games, as well as what the process of collecting involves.

[movies]GET LAMP: Jim Aspnes Interview - Jason Scott
One of the more common questions and statements made when I was discussing the production of GET LAMP was what role MUDs would play in the final work. MUDs, or Multi-User-Dimensions, or Multi-User-Dungeons (or Multi-Undergraduate Destroyers) were compelling, text-based worlds that took the world by storm starting in the 1970s and then attracting a mass of new adherents in the late 1980s and early 1990s with the introduction of many college students to the internet...

Bob Supnik represents a kind of interview I take great pride in: "Obscure, but critical". Even within text adventure circles, his name is not as well known as that of Don Woods, Willie Crowther, Scott Adams, or others. Yet Supnik holds an important place in the history of text adventures - while employed at DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation), he found the engineers enthralled with Adventure, but wanted to be able to play the game on something other than a mainframe, which had all sorts of limit...

When recording dozens of interviews for a documentary, a few are going to have notably less footage than the others, for no major reason other than time constraints and subject matter. While Mike Sousa is very scant in the GET LAMP movie and bonus features, he gave an excellent interview, the clips from which are finally available here.

Jeremy Douglass was one of a number of interactive fiction doctorates I interviewed for GET LAMP. In Jeremy's case, his defense was imminent (or it might have just happened, I don't quite remember) and so this was all a relatively new thing for him. His mind was full of his dissertation's research so he was a great interview just on that level of things. He drew a lot of parallels of writing and games and interactive fiction, and he'd been involved with the whole modern scene for years and years...

In this interview, his perspectives on Infocom both within the board as well as a writer were really great, and he shows up in a lot of places throughout GET LAMP.

Dan Shiovitz, also known as "inky", had an enormous amount of helpful insight into the modern interactive fiction scene. What I found most interesting was that he didn't really worship or look up to the "classic" interactive fiction era. He thought it was nice and that they'd done some good work back then, but what interested him was what was being done now. His interview, therefore, is forward thinking, based on the modern era, and was really helpful all over GET LAMP to add statements that rea...

One of these was Robert Pinsky, poet laureate of the US, who had worked on a game called "Mindwheel" in the 1980s, and who was Nick's professor at BU at one point...
